At the Assembly 2018: Tuesday Highlights

At the Assembly 2018: Tuesday Highlights

Welcome back to the second day of the 2018 General Assembly! Today is packed full of excellent sessions, and this list of highlights is by no means comprehensive! Make sure you complement this information with EGU Today, the General Assembly newsletter, to get the most out of the conference – grab a copy on your way in or download it here.

Union-wide Events

Today’s Union-wide session highlights past achievements and future challenges for the Geosciences (US1). This session will look back at past achievements in the geosciences, how they have shaped the modern world and civilisation and consider the opportunities and challenges that the discipline will face in the future. With a panel of six international leaders across the discipline: Katrien Maes, John Ludden CBE, Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, Barbara Romanowicz, Susan Trumbore, Mike Freilich, and EGU President Jonathan Bamber as convener, the session promises to be one of the conference highlights. Join the discussion from 9:00 to 12:00 in room E1.

Great Debates

This year’s Great Debates will hit the ground running today with not one, but two sessions! The first will address one of the most debated topics in the Earth sciences: Are safe geo-engineering techniques available now? According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, meeting the Paris agreement objectives would not only require reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but also removing much of the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This session will discuss both the potential benefits and risks of recent geoengineering techniques. Join in the debate from 13:30–15:00 in E1. You can follow the session on Twitter with #EGU18GDB, and, if you’re not attending, tune in with the conference live stream.

The following great debate is particularly geared towards early career scientists (ECS). Head to room G1 from 19:00 to 20:30 to discuss, in a series of small group debates, whether ECS should use time developing transferrable skills. Seating is limited for both debates so make sure to arrive early to guarantee a spot!

Scientific Sessions

The day is full of fantastic scientific sessions, from understanding the global phosphorus cycle to ice-ocean interactions. Below are just some of the sessions worth checking out today:

The day also has many interdisciplinary sessions to choose from. If your research involves the atmospheric or cryospheric sciences, consider attending a session on atmosphere – cryosphere interactions with focus on transport, deposition and effects of dust, black carbon, and other aerosols. Or perhaps you can explore methods and applications of high resolution topography in the geosciences.

Short Courses

If you want to hone your transferable skills and dedicate a bit of time to developing your career, then today’s short courses are for you. Here’s just a sample of what’s on offer:

There is also a great selection of short courses on how to communicate your science to the general public in a fun and effective way:

Learn how to cartoon your science with Matthew Partridge, the EGU’s Cartoonist in Residence (@ErrantScience)

Medal Lectures

Today is also a big day for Medal Lectures, there are twelve taking place throughout the day covering various areas of the geosciences. Make sure you check the programme so that you don’t miss them. The Arthur Holmes Medal Lecture by A. M. Celâl Şengör (ML3/GD/TS: 12:15-13:15 / Room E1) is being streamed live.

Townhall Meetings

There is also a treat of Townhall Meetings on this evening. These meetings allow for a lot more open discussion than many of the Assembly’s other sessions and take place outside the usual time blocks. Here are some of the highlights:

Have a lovely day!

The EGU General Assembly is taking place in Vienna, Austria from 8 to 13 April. Check out the full session programme on the General Assembly website and follow the Assembly’s online conversation on Twitter at #EGU18.

The Assembly documented through art!

The Assembly documented through art!

For the first time, the General Assembly will be documented by EGU’s very own artists in residence! Sam Illingworth, Science Communication Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), and Matthew Partridge, Senior Research Fellow at Southampton University (UK), have been busy this week producing poems and cartoons to share their conference experiences and communicate science. Why not take a break from the scientific sessions and enjoy the Assembly through a more artistic medium with this collection of poems and cartoons. This page will be updated with more of Sam and Matthew’s work as the week progresses.

Sunday:

A Lesson in Pico by Sam Illingworth

 

Presenting your work

In two minutes of madness

Challenges some and

Overwhelms others.

 

People try to explain every

Iota of detail and so they

Clean forget that it should be an

Overview or even better, a hook.

 

Persuade the audience;

Imbibe your short time with

Clear words and

Original illustrations.

 

Project and annunciate;

Impel them to listen as you

Carefully craft an

Opening statement.

 

Pique their interest, then…

Invite them to

Chat further at the

Oversized screens.

This is a didactic acrostic poem, offering some advice for PICO presenters at EGU. PICO (Presenting Interactive COntent) sessions take place at dedicated PICO spots throughout the EGU General Assembly and begin with each of the authors being given two minutes to present an overview of their work. After these short pitches, the authors each stand next to an assigned screen to show their interactive presentation in further detail to interested audience members, thereby combining the advantages of both oral and poster presentations.

Monday:

Big dataset printouts (SSS114.4) by Matthew Partridge

 

One upping soil carbon models (SSS114.4) by Matthew Partridge

 

Mechanistic relationships (SSS11.8) by Matthew Partridge & accompanying haiku by Sam Illingworth

 

The View from Space by Sam Illingworth

 

Above the clouds they float like distant trains

Surveying moving forms and distant trends,

From blooming growth to violent hurricanes.

 

But every solar cell and compound lens

Has trade-offs that present a patent fact:

They’re simply more effective when with friends.

By working in a symbiotic pact

Nations and private companies can thrive,

Without it, possibilities contract. 

 

With many new conductors set to drive,

The future’s bright if we can realign

Our differences to keep the dream alive.

 

And if we more effectively combine,

We’ll better understand our own design.

This is a terza rima, inspired by the Union Symposium at EGU 2018 about the future of Earth and planetary observations from space. In this session, researchers from a variety of space agencies discussed the challenges of organising space explorations, and highlighted the need for collaboration, both between different space agencies, and also between the public and private sectors.

Tuesday: 

ERC contribution (US1) by Matthew Partridge

 

The Risk of Low-risk Geoengineering by Sam Illingworth

 

Mistakes we’ve made have borne their fruit,

As climate change has taken root;

The rising warmth we must now slow

To two degrees, or just below.

But are such efforts simply moot?

 

Is cleaning air that we pollute,

An action that we should dispute?

Not doing so could help to grow

Mistakes we’ve made.

 

Pour iron down the ocean’s chute!

But to what strength should we dilute?

Sulphuric clouds we can now sow!

But what about the rain and snow?

Do these ideas just substitute

Mistakes we’ve made?

This is a Rondeau, inspired by the EGU 2018 Great Debate on geo-engineering. Geo-engineering is defined as a deliberate large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment to counteract anthropogenic climate change. This debate investigated whether or not low-risk and safe techniques are currently available, weighing up their potential to counteract anthropogenic climate change with the risks that they might prove. Whilst geo-engineering methods exist, none of them are as safe, low-cost, or readily available as taking preventative action to reduce emissions in the first instance. Furthermore, they can lull people into a false sense of security with regards to the real and immediate danger of climate change.

 

Remote sensing kitties (ML10) by Matthew Partridge

 

A Skilled Scientist? by Sam Illingworth

 

When early in the course of our research,

We’re taught how skills can be both soft and hard;

Yet when between postdocs we start to lurch,

The ‘softer’ skills are met with less regard.

 

Design skills do not mean a winning grant,

Teamwork is not protection from the sack;

And whilst good leadership should not be scant,

It doesn’t guarantee a tenure track.

 

Despite what other scientists may say

There’s other jobs in which we could excel,

Where skills are valued for what they portray;

The money’s often better there as well!

 

No matter what new skills you learn or do,

Just find a way to make them work for you.

 

This is a Shakespearian Sonnet, written as a summary of the EGU 2018 Early Career Scientists’ Great Debate. This debate focussed on whether early career scientists should spend time developing transferrable skills and involved over 100 early career scientists working together via several roundtable discussions. This poem was written during the event to capture the overall sentiment of the conversations that took place.

 

Social volcanology (GM1.6/EOS1988) by Matthew Partridge & accompanying haiku by Sam Illingworth

 

 

Wednesday:

Gas leakage (ERE5.3) by Matthew Partridge

 

Half a Century of Drilling by Sam Illingworth

 

In search of riddles hidden deep

A Challenger was built to sweep;

Just off the Southern US shore,

We bore into the Ocean floor.

 

The biosphere was searched with probes,

Unearthing strange deep-sea microbes;

With every gas hydrate or pore,

We bore into the Ocean floor.

 

Revealing methane locked in vents,

Now frozen into sediments;

Assessing every risk and flaw,

We bore into the Ocean floor.

 

By counting all the slips and slides,

We map the planet’s moving tides;

As ancient quakes reveal their lore,

We bore into the Ocean floor.

 

A record of our climate past,

Preserved within a shaly cast;

In search of what went on before,

We bore into the Ocean floor

 

Despite the secrets we now know

More truths are hiding down below;

There’s much to find and so once more,

We bore into the Ocean floor.

This is a Kyrielle, inspired by the EGU 2018 Union Symposium on 50 years of ocean drilling. In March 1968 a ship called the Glomar Challenger was constructed with the purpose of drilling up to 800 m below the seafloor. The Deep Sea Drilling Project began in the Gulf of Mexico in mid-August 1968, using the facilities of the Glomar Challenger and marking the start of 50 years of successful drilling. This session provided an overview of the research that has been made possible by this international and interdisciplinary ocean drilling program.

 

Games for geoscience (EOS17) by Matthew Partridge

 

Games for Geoscience by Sam Illingworth

 

Well-crafted games can be a useful tool

For helping different publics find their way;

As Plato said: “Life must be lived as play”,

From lawmakers to children still at school.

 

But research should help underpin each rule, 

And fun should make the players want to stay;

Well-crafted games can be a useful tool,

For helping different publics find their way.

 

From showing how volcanoes can be cruel,

To helping farmers find a waterway;

Forecasts can be enhanced through good roleplay, 

Whilst Zelda has made batholiths seem cool.

Well-crafted games can be a useful tool.

This is a Rondel, inspired by the Games for Geoscience session that took place at EGU 2018, and the accompanying Geoscience Games Night. During this session, participants presented research on using analogue, digital and/or serious games to communicate geosciences to different audiences. The Games Night presented an opportunity for EGU participants to play a selection of these games, and to provide feedback and playtesting for the game designers. These sessions were organised as a collaboration between the SeriousGeoGames Lab and the Games Research Network.

Thursday: 

 

Standadisation of earth science (ESSI2.9) by Matthew Partridge

 

Cassini batty (US3) by Matthew Partridge

 

Cassini by Sam Illingworth

 

You voyaged in the trail of pioneers,

To shed new light on Saturn and its rings;

By imaging its many circling spheres,

We glimpsed into the past of Earthly things.

 

Your Equinox and Solstice both burnt bright,

Revealing lightning in the darkest night;

And through your Grand Finale in the sky,

Your sacrifice means you shall never die.

 

This is an Heroic Rispetto, inspired by the EGU 2018 Union Symposium on the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn, a collaboration between NASA, ESA, and the Italian Space Agency. Over a period of 13 years, Cassini successfully returned a huge amount of data that has since been used to enhance our understanding of Saturn and its system, including in-situ sampling of Saturn’s upper atmosphere, and high-resolution imaging of Saturn, its rings, and several of its many moons. The two different phases of the Cassini mission were termed Equinox and Solstice, ending with a dramatic plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere on September 15, 2017, with the spacecraft continuing to record and transmit data until the very end.

 

Borehole sandpit (ESSI2.9) by Matthew Partridge

 

Regional Impact on a Global Scale by Sam Illingworth

 

We map the future climate of our Earth,

And model global patterns that might be;

By giving different regions certain worth,

These maps might hide the truth we want to see.

The coarse and fine will often disagree,

Improving some and making others worse;

By making all these models fair and free

Research can be inclusive and diverse,

Providing new predictions that are not adverse.

 

This is a Spenserian stanza, inspired by the 2018 Alexander von Humboldt Medal, which this year was won by Filippo Giorgi. This medal, named after Alexander von Humboldt, is awarded to scientists who have performed research in developing regions for the benefit of people and society. Giorgi pioneered the field of regional climate modelling and helped to develop the Regional Climate Model system (RegCM), which is used by a large scientific community worldwide. Regional climate models are needed to enhance the coarse resolution that is offered by global climate models, and the RegCM is flexible, easy to use, and can be applied to any region of the world. The RegCM model is also free to use, and the workshops and feedback that is provided by Giorgi and his team mean that it is particularly attractive to scientists from developing regions. These scientists can then use the model to better understand problems that are of high interest for local conditions in their countries, which in turn can be used to improve the both regional and global climate models.

 

Jelly earthquake model (NH4.2/SM3.06) by Matthew Partridge & accompanying haiku by Sam Illingworth

 

Friday: 

Urban flooding (HS2.1.1) by Matthew Partridge

 

Predicting snow (HS2.2.1) by Matthew Partridge

 

Medical Geology by Sam Illingworth

 

To benefit from minerals underground

And better understand the roles they play,

A balance in our intake must be found.

 

Spewed outwards from a deep volcanic mound

We measure how these clouds disperse away,

To benefit from minerals underground.

 

Effects on human health can be profound,

Abundances and droughts can cause dismay;

A balance in our intake must be found.

 

When traces sink below the safe background

We search for missing parts in soil and clay,

To benefit from minerals underground.

 

The danger of asbestos is renowned,

We toil to better map out its decay;

A balance in our intake must be found.

 

The synergies continue to abound,

The Earth and human system is two-way;

To benefit from minerals underground,

A balance in our intake must be found.

 

This is a Villanelle , inspired by the EGU 2018 session on Medical Geology, and its role as an interdisciplinary field of science for the benefit of the society. Medical Geology is defined as the science dealing with the relationships between geological factors and health (for both humans and animals). This emerging field adopts an interdisciplinary approach, and the session featured presentations from environmental and public health experts, animal health professionals, and geoscientists on topics that ranged from the risk of exposure to humans from naturally occurring asbestos in Southern Nevada, to the healing thermal waters of Ischia—a tiny volcanic island in the Gulf of Naples.

 

Chalky water use (HS2.1.1) by Matthew Partridge

 

Better Together by Sam Illingworth

 

The planet that we live on is a tangled mesh

Of interacting systems and processes;

From fluvial dynamics to sedimentary deposits,

Everything we see and feel

Floats on the Earth’s tectonics.

We map and measure the stresses and strains

Arisen from the risks and hazards

That are naturally occurring,

Then temper this with cold hard fact

That humans have the

Worst IMPACT.

As well as navel-gazing…

We point

Our instruments to the stars,

Grazing the rings of Saturn

And looking for water on Mars.

SPOILER ALERT: we found some.

I don’t mean to whitewash

Our achievements.

I mean we’ve been drilling

The ocean floor for over fifty years

And we still know less about what’s down there

Than the surface of Venus.

Oceanographers: this is heinous!

Geodynamicists: you also need to do better.

Hydrologists: wipe that smile off your face,

I was promised

The scaling law for the threshold function of the unsaturated reservoir;

Sort it out!

But this is all in the past.

Scientific research is changing,

We can no longer be the people who

Simply collect data and say:

‘Oh, fancy that!’

We should turn our hopes and methods into

Good IMPACT.

Diversity and equality are not just

Boxes we must tick

Without different people’s voices

Our science will get sick.

Every year we come together,

To find friends new and old;

Now we need a better method

To help others’ dreams unfold.

Politics will try to divide us,

I say: let it try!

Climate change is anthropogenic,

As sure as the sun sets in the sky.

And even when Brexit

Turns my passport blue,

I’ll still be the first letter in EGU.

With so much accomplished,

And so much to be done,

Let’s make this a home

For me,

You,

Everyone.

 

This poem was written as a summary of EGU 2018, in an attempt to capture the essence of the General Assembly, and the highlights that I experienced whilst poet in residence. Throughout the assembly there were so many positive messages of inclusivity that I wanted to capture those in my final poem. It has been an honour to be the poet in residence, and I hope that my poetry has helped to communicate some of the amazing research that is represented across the whole of the European Geosciences Union.

At the Assembly 2018: Monday highlights

At the Assembly 2018: Monday highlights

Welcome to the 2018 General Assembly! This is the first full day of sessions and there’s a feast of them to choose from. Every day we’ll be sharing some super sessions and events at EGU 2018 here on GeoLog and you can complement this information with EGU Today, the daily newsletter of the General Assembly.

Union-wide Events

Of particular importance today is the Union’s Plenary Meeting (PCN2) at 12:15 in Room E1 – it’s a forum for all Assembly attendees to discuss the development of the Union with the Union Council. Seeing as it’s over lunch, a buffet of scrumptious sandwiches and soft drinks will be served at the event.

We also have the NASA-ESA-EGU joint Union-wide session lined up (US2, 13:30–17:15 in E1). This session will feature the space agencies’ view on current and future planetary exploration and highlight observation missions for Earth and other planetary bodies. It’s not one to miss! You can also follow the session on Twitter (#EGU18US) and catch up with the EGU 2018 webstream.

Short Courses

The conference can be daunting, especially for first time attendees. For tips and tricks on how to navigate the General Assembly and to learn more about the EGU, why not attend SC2.1: 08:30–10:00/ Room -2.91. Remember you can also consult the first timer’s guide for more information.

There are several short courses kicking off a week of exciting workshops. You can supercharge your data analysis skills in Age Models and geochronology: An introductory course to different age-depth modelling approaches (SC1.10/CL6.06/GM12.4/SSP2.20: 15:30–17:00 / Room -2.85). Or if your research focuses on natural hazards, you can share ideas and build connections in a quick-fire and sociable way at Speed-dating: Research-match making (SC3.19/NH10.3: 15:30–17:00 / Room -2.31). Presenting at a scientific conference can be daunting for both early career and established scientists. Fortunately, Help! I’m presenting at a scientific conference! (SC2.2: 13:30–15:00 / Room -2.16) will have hands-on tips and tricks in order to make your talk memorable and enjoyable for both speaker and audience.

Scientific Sessions

Today’s General Assembly programme features a number of interdisciplinary events, which tackle a common theme through an interdisciplinary combination of approaches. The aim of the sessions is to foster cross-division links and collaborations. Learn how to work with big data sets with two session focusing on Big data and machine learning in geosciences (IE4.1: Orals / 10:30–12:00 / 13:30–17:00 / Room N2; Posters / 17:30–19:00 / Hall X3) and information extraction from satellite observations (IE4.5: Orals / 08:30–10:00 / Room N2; Posters / 17:30–19:00 / Hall X5). Another session will highlight imaging techniques for modelling geological processes (IE3.4: 15:30–17:00 / PICO spot 4).

There are of course many other scintillating scientific sessions throughout the day. Here’s just a sample of what’s on offer:
